Reading some excerpts for AP English from this book Outliers by Rex Gladwell, I have to say it's a really good book. Really makes you think . Decided to post what I posted  on the class blog. Sorry for not posting much lately, School, College, SAT studying a bit and such got me kind of busy haha. I'll try to post more.

Well here it is....





 
 
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."
-Robert Frost

What do you guys think about this quote? What is Frost trying to convey?

- I think, and don't take my view as the god-all be all because it's not but I believe life will keep on going even after we're gone which is a concept even I can't even begin to swallow. Scary stuff.

What do you guys think? Comment below..

> This is the way I feel about 9/11 and this issue seems a lot of people on my NewsFeed and on other Facebook Pages I felt the need to add my opinion too. Enjoy Guys.

I feel America has done much worse( I see 9/11 has a harsh bite in the ass for what we've down in the past) , we've bombed Japan( I see you argue we saved "millions" of lives; MacArthur (a crazy general and our best) said we should blockade them until they surrender - which would've much much better choice, Vietnam( fighting against communism in that area), Got involved in matters we shouldn't have, Protecting Israel( which I'm on the fence on that; don't really know the right decision; although sending billions+ billions to them each year along with Egypt is ridiculous ), and among other matters. 9/11 was a tragedy, " A Day That Will Live In Infamy" but things such as the Holocaust, etc. the amount and toll of other events as well far exceed 9/11.
People say it's a conspiracy, I watched a documentary that showed HOW they got here, HOW they got prepared and went to flight school,etc. right here and blended in. It also said they had received warnings from the CIA, etc. of Bin Laden planning to attack. Did they do anything to intervene that?
Nope.
After the USS Cole attack;
The Navy said they could bomb the camp Bin Laden was in and could've killed him, but I believe Clinton said no because of the innocents located there. Which I find kind of dumb, we could've maybe prevented a tragedy like this is happening.
And our lives are affected by this everyday. I hate this day.
Why?
We're reminded of the terrible thing that happened on 9-11 ironically the number being dialed all through those greusome and stress filled hours.
They said Bush knew IT was going to happen, but let it happen so he could have a reason for going to Iraq and the Middle East to get oil. And Killing Saddam Hussein, who wasn't responsible for 9/11..

All and all it's really in lack for a term that expresses my feelings right now, fucked up. Excuse my french but I had to get it out there. I respect the people who serve in the Army as it's not their choice where they go to fight but they fight for our freedoms and such. And the First Responders who lost their lives trying to selflessly save others knowing they could've possibly died. And Those People are real heroes to me.
And Batman, Spiderman And Superman. The Traditional Heroes, you know? Just kidding, but anyway what I'm saying in this rant is We Treat 9/11 as such a huge tragedy (and it is) but we inflate it for more than it actually was. Tragedies such as The Holocaust for example, where over 6 Million Innocent people died, mostly Jewish for no reason at all; a complete manslaughter. To end this "rant" or article for that matter, Please comment your thoughts below I'd love to see our views on this issue. Thanks Guys.

I think for some blog I'll put just a quote and you guys tell me what you guys think about it. I think I'll also do more music reviews in the future. Stay tuned for that. Anyway, heres the quote.

"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." - Albert Einstein

Is Life Defined by living for others? Or Yourself? Or a Combination of the two?
Thoughts?

Feel Free To Comment.

Well,   Today was the First Day Of School or should I say the LAST First Day of School, myself being a Senior( Time Flies!). Feels like yesterday I was a freshman just entering the realm of High School scared of the depths that laid ahead. We entered those doors unaware of what awaited us behind those doors. Turned out High School wasn't that bad as we all expected, to be honest It made me feel like I sort of was growing up away from the "babying" of Elementary School and the "pre-highschool" phase of Middle School.

Anyway, High School for the first day went exceptionally well. Better than expected.
For One, Pre-Calculus seems like a challenge. Our Teacher seems to pretty much tell us they're not capable of teaching us in class and we'll have to read the textbook at home (Great).
But Other Than That, Freshman Year I was in Band/Instrumental Music. I was pretty good, had a solo and stuff and played 2nd Clarinet out of 3. Now I'm a Senior 2 Years Later, Awesome.
Physics AP + English AP will be challenging being in AP courses but I'm up to it.


Overall, Just a few classes I quickly discussed and such. Seems like a pretty awesome School Year if I do say myself. Friends in every class.. Feel free to comment and keep your eye out for more blogs!
